My surgery was approximately 1 1/2 months ago. For the last month have had severe diarrhea green in color and burning. This can occur up to 4-6X a day especially during the night. I know with this type of surgery, diarrhea can occur as the bile passes straight through into the bowel. Has anyone experienced this, and what was the treatment? Bile Acid Sequestrants? Thanks.

I was given the SADI DS when I had requested the traditional DS. It was apparently done incorrectly and I developed bile reflux. I had to take the sequestrant to absorb the bike until I could have it reversed to the traditional DS. Apparently the SADI can cause bile reflux where the real DS does not.
mare you sure of what procedure you received?

My surgery was the Second Stage Duodenal Switch with Double Anastomosis Ileal Interposition. Which I believe is the traditional DS surgery. Hoping to start the sequestrants once I speak to the surgeon in the next couple of days.

Your poop will go through the colors of rainbow over the next year. It's ok.

I had the Sadi DS which was a home run for me, but I do take Omeprozole for acid reflux. I also had it pre wls and it's not an issue as long as I take the pills.
